PLUCK AND PRESENCE OF MIND Striking Examples. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

PI.UOK AND PRESENCE OF MIND ; Striking Examples. During one of the sieges directed by the Spaniards against the fortresa of Gibraltar, an Kuglisl: artilleryman, named Hartley, was occupied one d«y in the laboratory, filling shells for the use of the guuuers. He was surroun ded with gunpowder, charged shells, and other explosives, hut as he was tar away from the reach of any of the enemy's shots, and quite Isolated from the work which was going on in the fortress itself, he suspected no danger, and feit no uneasiness. But suddenly, as he was fixing the fuse of a new shell, the fuse caught Are, and spurted out a puft of smoke and a Bhower of sparks like a miniature vol cano. Hartley know by experience that in a few seconds the shell would burst, and its contents would be scat-, tered through the laboratory. All the explosives around him, so necessary to enable the garrison to hold out against the siege and save Gibraltar for England, would be flred in a mo ment, and work terrible dest...

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY (By L. G. Chiozza Money, In "Dally News and Leader.") Staring out at me from the columns of a daily newspaper, published as the considered utterance ,o£ a member ot Parliament, I see a statement to the effect that if the wages of British work men were doubled to-morrow, the change would bo of no value to them because tho prices of commodities would rise in the same proportion, and there fore they would be no better off than before. It is necessary to take serious note of this statement, because I find it Is the expression of an opinion which Is widely held up and down the United Kingdom at the present time. This opinion has gained ground because ol the reaction in prices which has taken place during the last half generation Recause that rise in prices has can celled the value of the rise in wages in the same period, people have jumped to the conclusion that higher wages and higher prices are necessary concomi tants of eacli other. It i...

CHAPTER XV. Lady Montamor. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

CHAPTER XV. I Lady Montamor. Lady Montamor was seated at the writing table in her boudoir. Of French extraction, she had, as the pretty bru nette Julie de Villeneuve, captured the hitherto unconquered affections of Lord Montamor. But, as southern born brunettes, unless they "put on flesh,' as it is brutally termed, do not retain the smooth skin and rich beau ty of youth as long as their northern sisters, so it would have oeen hard for oue knowing Julie de Villeneuve in .her first girlhood's bloom to recog nise her in this withered, faded, old lady with the crumpled brown skin, the prominent .bones of cheek and brow, the scant grey hair under a black lace head-dress. Lady Monta mor could not 'be robbed by age of her magnificent eyes. But even they had lost their clearness and fire and their focus of things. She gaze* down at the notepaper on which she was liter ally scribbling letters, through her pince-nez, and would have reminded any stranger of an old owl as she sat there In her b...

It should test not less than 30 per cent, butter fat, and should have a sweet, cleai flavour.

He moved about his v,'lose quarters like a Polar bear in his cage—alternately puzzled, angry, miserable, hopeless. Netta loved him, he told himself. She bad loved him before the great shock of a contest for her, more un scrupulous, more terrible than the struggle of two men loving one girl is wont to be in civilised times. She had loved him still when he had to make his confession—a confession not only of the evil accruing to his own passions, but to those of his rival. But had she ever been again the same bright, lovely Netta of the first happy days at the farm? "Never," he thought. She had seemed to recover from the first shock of his revelations. In any case, she had submitted to his wishes—had given her promise to foe his wife; nor had she—spotless, innocent of al! worldly desires—been in the least de...
